dumbgai
Member since Mar-10-07 · Last seen Sep-03-15
28 years old, USCF rating 1726. Personal best around 2100 blitz on ICC and Playchess. Around 1800 on FICS (handle: dumbgai). Inactive in OTB competition since 2011. Inactive in all chess since 2013.

I still follow professional chess because I'm curious to see who wins, but overall my sense is that too many people take this board game way too seriously.

dumbgai: The reasoning behind giving a higher k-factor to low rated players and young players is that in case of a mismatch between rating and playing strength, it allows the rating to "catch up" more quickly. Higher k-factor makes ratings more sensitive to recent results, because the player

dumbgai: A fun day to be too poor to hold any stocks.

dumbgai: Surely this is the first time the top Chinese player is ranked ahead of the top Russian player.
 
   Aug-20-15 Leko - Li Chao (2015) (replies)
